As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

May Allaah Ta’aala shower upon the deceased with His infinite mercy and grace and elevate her status in Jannah. May He grant the family sabr jameel.

We have been advised that the deceased is survived by her husband, her mother, one son and two daughters.

Accordingly, after funeral expenses, debts and bequests, the estate, which is inclusive of ALL of the deceased’s belongings irrespective of how insignificant such as clothing, beauty and hygiene products, etc., will be divided into 48 shares as follows:

-The husband will receive 12 shares (25%).
-The mother will receive 8 shares (16.67%).
-The son will receive 14 shares (29.17%).
-The daughters will receive 7 share (14.58%) each.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
